Tillandsia Stellifera has fuzzy foliage that is a green so light it appears white with long, dense trichomes. These super cute air plants are truly unusual. When blooming they produce pink blooms with purple flowers. They grown long on a stem and when pups are left in place they can form an incredible clump that does well hanging. Their natural environment is at a high elevation with cooler temperatures, bright light and little water. When caring for Stellifera mist really well rather than soak. A quick "rinse" under the faucet will also suffice. Provide lots of bright light and an open, airy environment. Avoid high temperatures.
These plants are low maintenance, making them a great choice for people who are new to indoor plants.
They need regular daily indirect or filtered sunlight (so fine for desks, shelves, bathrooms or bedrooms). A weekly water is all they require - although you can always give them a mist in between if they look a little dry.
Air plants prefer regular air circulation, so we suggest open terrariums rather than the kind with lids.
We stock an air plant fertilizer which is ideal for this plant - check out the 'Supplies' section of our shop to see more. We also have a wide range of fillers which you can use as a base in any plant pot you might use. Orchid bark is a great choice for this!
